Green (director, Celiac Disease Ctr., Columbia Univ.) and Jones, a science writer and celiac disease patient, have added new information to this revised version of one of LJ's Best Consumer Health Books of 2006. The authors organize this edition the same way as the first, explaining the diagnosis, genetics, and possible complications, with seven chapters devoted to the gluten-free diet. Sections on the diagnosis and management of the disease are updated, and reports of more recent scientific research into a treatment or cure are included. There is a revised list of safe grains and ingredients and tips on reading labels as well as an expanded list of gluten-free product manufacturers. The 2006 edition, which has been a staple in library collections on celiac disease and gluten intolerance, is still a valuable resource worth keeping. This new edition is highly recommended for all libraries, even those that own the first edition.
